Yes, you can opt to use Standard Deduction instead of itemizing. When you do that, any State refund is not taxable.

Don't want standard, want itemized. 24k std and 42k itemized.

30k in interest and 10k max SALT well in excess of 24k standard.

Your question: "Can I not report any state tx because I am getting a refund, do not want to declare it as income?" I directly addressed that. Another option: Choose Sales Tax vs. SALT deduction. Those are the only two ways to make a State refund not taxable.
